"Intention is everything." - Eric the Trainer
Celebrity trainer and host of Discovery Channel's "Celebrity Sweat", "Eric the Trainer" joins The Brink of Midnight Podcast with John Brenkus.
Take one look at Eric the Trainer (Eric Fleishman) and a ripped comic book character origin story comes to mind. For the last 27 years, he's worked with UFC fighters, police officers, special forces, and celebrities and artists across the spectrum of entertainment and music. He is especially well-known for his methods of total transformation and his roster, among countless clients, includes: Nickelback, Def Leppard, Fallout Boy, The Strokes, the casts of "House of Cards", "Game of Thrones", "Walking Dead", "Mindhunter", "Seal Time", and many on-air personalities. A glance at the extensive roster of "Celebrity Sweat" guests will show you Eric really knows what he's talking about. He's also the Fitness Director for the American Culinary Federation (ACF), helping the best chefs do what they do best through health and wellness.
But it's not just about physical transformation...from rural Maine farm boy (with the nickname "Squeaky"), Eric transformed his life from the inside out and apprenticed under the great fitness and health pioneer, Jack Lalane. As in his own daily life, he helps people through a holistic approach, including East/West lenses, and working backward from intention to make new habit-forming change.
ERIC'S WORDS OF WISDOM
"The science of change is only three things when it comes to changing your body: 1) the right exercise, 2) the right diet, 3) the right sleep"
"Sleep is to the body what an oven is to cookie dough."
"When it comes to transformation in life, you have to be able to articulate what a best cast scenario is in any situation to apply the tools that will get you there. If you try to get the tools without a destination in mind you'll never reach a place of true satisfaction."
"Intention is everything."
"When you're on a mission that's greater than yourself to make the world a better place through a healthy lifestyle, nothing will stop you."
